eBay Art

How did we ever survive without eBay?

Seems like we can find anything we want on that online auction site. So it should come as no surprise art is available there, too!

I frequently place small pieces on eBay for bid. These items are a little different from what I normally do: besides the smaller sizes (8" x 10"/20cm x 25cm; and on panel, not canvas), they don't have the transparent layers of color that give my "regular" paintings the appearance of stained glass. But since I know I need to keep the prices low, I can't spend a great deal of time creating them.

However, I still feel pride in what I produce, and sometimes it gives me a chance to try things that I might re-create on a larger scale later.

The attached image is an example of this. It's obviously not a desert scene! But it was fun to do, I want to paint a bigger version someday soon, I enjoy the colors of autumn, and I believe I captured the spiritual essence of the place.

(To find me on eBay, simply search for "Mark Junge." You can narrow the search by searching under the "Art" category).
